Quinoa Sliders

Healthy AND tasty!
Course: Lunch
Keyword: gluten-free, pickled radishes, quinoa, sliders, vegetarian
Servings: 4


  • 1 1/4 cups rainbow quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 3/4 cups vegetable stock (low sodium)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves chopped
  • 3 fresh green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 cup quinoa flour
  • 16 whole-wheat slider buns, toasted
  • 1 ½ cups arugula
  • ¼  cup pickled radishes (See directions below)
  • 16 kosher dill petite pickles

Pickled Radishes:

  • 10 red radishes, trimmed, unpeeled, quartered
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 2 cups distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a saucepan, bring quinoa, vegetable stock and sea salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, place next 11 ingredients (through egg white) in a food processor or blender and mix until combined.
  • Add the seasoning mix and the quinoa flour one spoonful at a time to the cooled quinoa. Mix to combine.
  • Roll and mold the mixture into 16 ¼-inch patties, and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake the patties for 15–20 minutes until brown.
  • To assemble, layer each bottom bun with arugula, a patty, pickled radishes, the top bun and a toothpick-speared petite pickle.

Pickled Radishes:

  • Combine first 3 ingredients in a clean 1 quart glass jar. Add vinegar, salt, and sugar. Cover; shake until sugar and salt begin to dissolve.
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 days, shaking once a day.


DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 month ahead. (The flavor mellows the longer the mixture pickles.) Keep chilled. Source: Epicurious
